Toulouse was dubbed the "Pink City" for its ubiquitous terracotta brickwork, but it's come a long way since this was its main claim to fame. Apart from being the main aerospace centre in Europe, it has also been at the leading edge of French sport for many decades, mainly thanks to its top flight rugby team. When you buy or sell Toulouse event tickets on StubHub, you're in for a juxtaposition of age-old history, passionate sporting prowess and the some of the most modern technology of your time. And we haven't even begun to mention the dozens of theatres, ballet houses and opera houses that dot the city. It's a cultural experience like few other.
Ballet of a different kind in Toulouse
Toulouse won't stop surprising you. You can find intimate, out-of-the-way venues down almost every second street, where you can feast on a wide variety of local theatre, as well as touring productions. Lovers of classical and modern ballet should make every effort to see Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse, the city's premier ballet company. They have long been in residence at Théâtre du Capitole, where opera is also performed. For ballet of an entirely different kind (the comparison has been made), treat yourself to professional rugby at its highest level in the Northern Hemisphere by watching Toulouse Rugby play a Top 14 home match – a competition it has won with formidable consistency. Include as much of this as possible in your Toulouse event tickets.
Toulouse for music and museums
Mainstream and more Avant Garde music concerts have found a home in Toulouse at Zenith de Toulouse. Many of Europe's most popular national stars have performed there, so you're pretty much guaranteed to find a lip-smacking variety at this venue on StubHub. For more classical music, take a walk to the Halle aux Grains to watch The Orchestre National du Capitole, which is the city's main symphony orchestra. The rest of your time in Toulouse can happily be spent immersing yourself in its art culture. There are so many museums that you'll scarcely be able to keep up. Have a careful look for the choice exhibitions when you book Toulouse event tickets.
Outwards into the vineyards of Bordeaux
Toulouse isn't too far from the Bordeaux region, a place that causes wine lovers to instantly prick up their ears. A visit to the city of Bordeaux is thus a no-brainer, where you can also find more high-quality opera. On the way there, stop at Agen to view the Goya collection at its Fine Arts Museum. As Toulouse is relatively near the Spanish border, a trip across to Zaragoza is certainly in order as well, site of one of the most popular indie music festivals in Europe.
